...BECAUSE SOME OF US THINK THAT THIS STUFF IS IMPORTANT
What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.

CABINET OF CURIOSITIES: Keith Emerson's Bling

Of all the items that we have chosen for the 'Cabinet of Curiosities' this - so far - has got to be the most valuable. On eBay yesterday for a whopping $7,995 this gold bracelet is alleged to have been owned by none other than Keith Emerson. You know, him out of ELP.

The package does, apparently, include a 'letter of authenticity', but who has signed said letter remains a mystery, mostly because I haven't got eight grand to spare, and if I had I would be more likely to repair my leaking roof than to buy a piece of dodgy 1970s bling.

But it is a pretty good entry in the 'Cabinet of Curiosiuties'; you cannae argue with that!"
